Hornby Tornado Pullman Train Set. 4.7 5 16 16
Great Hornby Set BUT !!! Locomotive is an excellent fast runner. The coaches are fine except a set of couplings were broken off two of the coaches as the rivet was not through the coupling loop and so they had come off. To me no problem as I have spares and screws and washers, but anyone buying this as a starter set may want to check the couplings on the coaches before taking it home and setting up to avoid disappointment. Otherwise Great Railwaying (I so do detest the American Railroading term). 23 September 2014
great product very good price really happy 09 September 2014
Great value !!! This product is fantastic value for money ! I have seen the Hornby locomotive alone on sale for much more than the entire purchase ! Brilliant ! 02 September 2014
Hornby Tornado Pullman set What amazing value - the Tornado locomotive is usually more expensive than this whole set. Has made a great 66th birthday present for my husband as he has wanted the Tornado model for some time. 02 September 2014
this product is first class the Tornado Pullman is a good example of modern Hornby the only thing I don't like about it is the back pony truck is not articulated but the set includes 3rd radius curves, it will run on 2nd radius curves but keep the speed down to about 60% and it runs well. The price at Argos is the cheapest I have seen and it was delivered free the day after I bought it on line. I am very satisfied with the set. 29 October 2013

If the answer is yes does this affect the speed of the train? So if two trains were running then the speed would be reduced by half?

Answer:
if you wanted to run 2 trains on the same track on dc layout. thay would crash. as you always get one train that is faster then the other train. if you wanted to run 2 trains on the same track then you can by adding a decoder to this loco. but then you would need a dcc controller.

Answer:
Hi, Adele.

The Hornby Tornado Pullman Train Set is an analogue set, which means if you wish to run two trains on this both will be controlled at the same time - ie if you speed one up the other will speed up as well. You will not be able to control them independently of each other.

Have a good day.

Answer:
Hi Lynn.

Having looked into this for you, I can advise that the Hornby Tornado Pullman Train Set is not the Orient Express model. This set consists of the 'Tornado' steam locomotive and 3 Pullman carriages.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
